This film plays with such enthusiasm for its characters, it was hard not to find myself grinning from ear to ear. Playful and sentimental but hitting the right notes, its worth every minute.

I love good food and I love heartwarming stories. This film features both. What more can I ask for?

Nice storyline, entertaining, and shows some of the struggles of running a small business.

Colourful characters provide wistful entertainment, leads to predictable feel-good ending
